Protecting our communities   through shared information and communications

Welcome to the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center (NCRIC). The NCRIC is a government program that helps safeguard   each of our communities by serving as a dynamic security nexus through improved information sharing.  

The NCRIC was created to improve our region's, state's and nation's ability to detect, prevent, investigate, and respond to criminal and terrorist activity. We collect tips, leads,   suspicious activity reporting (SAR) and criminal information; conduct analysis; disseminate intelligence; provide training; provide technology resources; as well as facilitate communications between Federal, State and local public safety agencies, homeland security agencies, and private & public sector critical infrastructure partners to help them take action on threats and public safety issues. 

The personnel assigned to the NCRIC are dedicated to protecting public safety and the privacy, civil rights and civil liberties of the members of the public we serve. Thank you very much for visiting our site and please go to the Congressional report on the National Network of Fusion Centers and the National Strategy for more information.

Training those who serve

Indicators of Terrorist Threats

The Northern California Regional Intelligence Center (NCRIC), working in conjunction with other California Fusion Centers that are part of the State Threat Assessment System (STAS), have produced a briefing / training video for first responders on the "Pre-incident Indicators of Terrorism."  Copies of this video are available to NCRIC member agencies through the NCRIC's Terrorism Liaison Officer (TLO) Program.  Please contact your NCRIC Regional TLO representative for further information. Law Enforcement members can also watch this video in its entirety by logging in to the NCRIC's Law Enforcement Home Page. 


The staff at the NCRIC would like to recognize and thank the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) for providing the grant funding which supported the production of this video.

Critical Infrastructure Protection

The NCRIC's Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) capability enables public and private entities to identify, assess, prioritize, and protect critical infrastructure and key resources so they can detect, prevent, deter, devalue, and mitigate deliberate efforts to destroy, incapacitate, or exploit critical infrastructure and key resources.
